Stage Craft Studio to present Rodgers and Hart’s classic musical BABES IN ARMS


Stage Craft Studio presents Rodgers and Hart’s classic musical BABES IN ARMS June 26th & 27th at 8 pm and June 28th at 3pm at Union Catholic High School, 1600 Martine Avenue, Scotch Plains, NJ 07076

Produced by Stage Craft Studio and directed by Maggie Graham, Rodgers and Hart’s BABES IN ARMS is the quintessential 'Hey, kids, let's put on a show!' musical, boasting one of the greatest scores ever written including such greats as; “Where Or When,” “I Wish I Were In Love Again,” “Johnny One-Note,” “Way Out West,” “My Funny Valentine,” and “The Lady Is a Tramp.” A group of teenagers are left without adult supervision when their folks hit the vaudeville summer circuit, and the local sheriff is determined to send the loafers to a work farm. The old-fashioned virtues of a 30's musical comedy are peppered with socio-political issues which have remained resonant for more than six decades, and which later became the hallmark of Rodgers' collaboration with Hammerstein. But it's the sophisticated jocularity that make his musicals with Hart utterly unique, propelling these talented teens in their onward march toward self-discovery.

The talented 44 member cast features Bob Wischusen the radio voice for the New York Jets. Eric Calvo, Lina Zikas, Nicole Cusmano, Christopher Elliott, Samantha Bordman, Ethan Graham, Daniel Dawson, Elizabeth Casserly, Philip Tice, Amelia Graham, Nicholas Cheney and many more.

Stage Craft Studio, a performing arts educational studio in downtown Scotch Plains, opened its doors on February 1st at 1735 E. Second Street.

Stage Craft Studio owners, Julie Wischusen, of Cranford and Maggie Graham, of Fanwood, have long envisioned a space where children of all ages as well as adults can gather to hone their theatrical skills in a supportive and creative environment. Babes in Arms is the company’s first full scale musical production.
